Harry Birthday Baba!

Located inside the Wynn, SW Steakhouse is considered one of Las Vegas’ absolute best steakhouses and a must-visit if you’re a fan of steak. Since my dad most certainly is a fan of steak and his Las Vegas bucket list consisted of eating steak, we found SW Steakhouse for he and my mom to visit. It worked out because celebrated his birthday and the restaurant even brought out a little free birthday dessert for them at the end of their meal. They decided on the Chile Rubbed Double Rib Eye (which serves two). Just looking at the pictures tells me the food was pretty awesome, but my parents are pretty hard to please when it comes to fancy food so they just said that it was OK. Oh well …

Even though I’ve never stayed in either the Wynn or Encore (since one night costs and arm and a leg), I love walking through because they are so beautifully and artfully decorated. My absolute favorite thing about walking through the different Strip casinos is that each one seems to transport you to a different world. The Wynn and Encore transport you to a magical dream filled with flowers and butterflies. These two casinos aren’t themed based on a place in this world, but somewhere beautiful and out of this world … and who doesn’t love stepping into a beautiful dream where everything is beautiful?

One evening, my sisters and I ate at BLT Burger. Located inside The Mirage, BLT Burger was on the Food channel and even won a contest for having the best burger in Las Vegas. Its Route 80 Burger holds that honor. BLT Burger also offers delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic shakes. Since there were three of us, we each decided to order a different burger with a different shake so we could try as many options as possible. All I can say is yum! While the burgers were delicious, the shakes really stole the show here. Not only were the shakes huge, they had such awesome flavors! The definitely left full and satisfied!

The Mirage is one of my favorite casinos in Las Vegas, just because it’s so pretty! It is beautiful both outside with its fountains and lake as well as inside with its greenhouse, garden, and fish tank. I’m guessing the dolphin habitat is pretty amazing, too, but I’ve never been able to convince myself to cough up the money to visit it since I’ve been to other places before that have dolphins.

I especially like The Mirage‘s nightly volcano shows. Starting at 8 pm, the fake volcano outside The Mirage starts spewing and eventually blows. There are shows every half an hour. This time, we were able to line up early and stood really close to the volcano itself. I seriously never realized how hot it got right there when the volcano’s real fire starts blowing!
